McCoy, Ronald

April 10th, 2009

Ronald M. McCoy, age 72 died peacefully, Thursday April 9, 2009 at Lahey Clinic following a brief illness.

Ron was born May 1, 1936, son of the late Predor and Alma (Williams) McCoy. He was born and raised in Roxbury and later lived in Holbrook.

Ron and his family have been part of the Wilmington community for many years. Ron worked as a Barber in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. His shop was located on Lowell Street. Around town he was known as “Ron the Barber”. Ron sold the barber shop in the 70’s. If you asked him why, he would joke and say it was all The Beatle’s fault with their “long hair”. Ron then worked for the Town of Wilmington as a custodian. He worked at several of the buildings, was President of the Union and was active in Camp 40 Acres. He retired in 1999 and enjoyed going to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.

Ron was the beloved husband of the late Josephine (Miceli). He is survived by his children, Vincent McCoy and his girlfriend Denise Fortin of Dracut, Robert McCoy and his wife Janice of Wilmington, Deborah (McCoy) Huebner and her husband Paul of Wilmington and the late Ronnie “Junior”. Big Brother to David, Jeffrey and the late Joseph McCoy. Long time boyfriend to Peggy Conley of Peabody. Brother-in-Law to James Miceli of Wilmington. Grandfather to Brett, Shelbylynn, Nicolette and Janenne.
